Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1. Jesus the mighty conq’ror,
Now rises from the tomb,
His resurrection glory
Dispels its chilling gloom.
While, from its open portals,
An angel, clad in light,
Doth reveal to mortals
The triumphs of His might.

For the Lord hath risen,
The Lord hath risen,
The Lord hath risen,
And conquered every foe.

2. The grave its awful conquest
O’er man for ages won;
Defeated, now surrenders
To God’s victorious Son;
The mighty conq’ror, captive
Now leads captivity,
Precious gifts bestowing
Of life and liberty. [Refrain]

3. Death’s power fore’er is broken,
God’s saints no longer mourn;
Its sting can bring no torture,
For Christ the curse hath borne;
His glorious exaltation
Let men and angels sing;
Jesus, mighty conq’ror!
In earth and Heaven is King. [Refrain]
